The list of the representatives of traditional rulers in the Menoua Division had been rejected by the Administrative Bench of the Supreme Court on grounds that it did not respect the sociological components of the region as stated in Section 246 (1) of the Electoral Code. The said Section of the law clearly states that the regional council shall reflect the various sociological components of the region as well as the gender aspects. Where cancellation of all or part of the election is final, electors shall according to the law be convened within no more than 60 days of such cancellation. Following the rejection of the list therefore, the President of the Republic on January 4, 2021 in accordance with the law convened the electoral college for the by-election in the Menoua Division for April 4, 2021.
